“The End We Start From is a beautifully spare, haunting meditation on the persistence of life after catastrophe. I loved it.”—Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven
“The End We Start From is strange and powerful, and very apt for these uncertain times. I was moved, terrified, uplifted—sometimes all three at once. It takes skill to manage that, and Hunter has a poet’s understanding of how to make each word count.”—Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl With a Pearl Earring
“Extraordinary. Megan Hunter’s prose is exquisite, her depiction of a world descending into chaos is frighteningly real, and yet, it is her portrayal of motherhood—that tender-terrifying experience of bringing a child into a world—that has remained with me. The End We Start From is an incredible, original exploration of all that beauty, boredom and bewilderment. I read it in one sitting, and was deeply moved.”—Hannah Kent, author of Burial Rites and The Good People
“I can’t remember ever having read a novel quite as sparing or as daring as Megan Hunter’s The End We Start From, or one that delivers so mighty an impact from such delicate materials. It is a moving, wistful and compelling debut.”—Jim Crace, author of Harvest
“The End We Start From is so good and clever: a beautiful, timely book about survival (both domestic and global) shot through with hope and humanity.”—Lisa Owens, author of Not Working
